THE younger brother of the in­fa­mous Ivan Mi­lat, Paul Thomas Mi­lat, has pleaded guilty to eight charges of fraud in crimes de­scribed as hav­ing a “huge” im­pact on the com­mu­nity.

Paul Mi­lat, 57, was co-ac­cused with part­ner of 10 years, 56-year-old Lynda Ann Lu­cas, in front of Chin­chilla Mag­is­trates Court.

The court heard the pair had been post­ing ad­ver­tise­ments on­line and putting posters up for items, then re­ceiv­ing pay­ment with­out hand­ing over the items.

Ads were also posted on Gumtree for items such as a cock­a­too, shipping con­tainer, car­a­van, trailer and wa­ter tank.

Over six months, be­tween De­cem­ber 4, 2018, to the end of July 2019, the pair al­legedly stole $2880. They both pleaded guilty to eight counts of fraud.

The pair was fined $1200 each for eight counts of fraud and $1440 each in resti­tu­tion to the vic­tims.
